killed and benghazi by a strange jihadists group that changed his name to something else. when they proceeded to a rest most of them later on they exist in libya and haven't been in the number of times now they're hundreds of thousands. where they come from would have allowed them to proceed that the point that the presence of the council the general himself and the military had come out. many other issues, the statement where they said the length of the activities and the former members of the regime and to the security forces. the defense of security after the point of what has happened on tuesday. not only was the action a -- it was called into action and he went of flour and was not prepared. we should dig deeper. it touched me personally. i started thinking and in thinking i went back -- i think that there are two things that we have committed. the first one is that history should have told us something and go back to when libya was formed in the 1950's and he addressed his father in the 2000 nationals which remain in my mind the state of not exchange. do not think that be
. >> we hear from you fully about your -- benghazi right now and a couple of specifics i want to ask you. was there ever any discussion, after the benghazi attack, of putting marines at the compound in benghazi to help secure it? and what is your assessment and analysis of al qaeda and al qaeda affiliates or inspired organizations there, their ability to assemble and generate an attack capability of this sort very rapidly, and for the united states to openly have no sense that it needed to provide the security to meet that potential threat? what does it say to you about al qaeda related groups in that region? >> okay. first of all with regards to benghazi, what we, what we responded to was a request to provide a f.a.s.t. team that would go into tripoli and try to provide additional security there and we responded to that and did that. at that point, for all intents and purposes, benghazi had been, you know, pretty much unoccupied by any of the diplomatic and, other security personnel that were there. so, the main focus then was on tripoli and the embassy in tripoli and that's what we res
.s. consulate in benghazi, the torture and killing of our ambassador, the deaths of three american patriots and the following attacks and deaths involving marines in afghanistan. americans are watching a conflagration of an estimated half million jihadists and over 30 countries burning portraits of our presidents and american flags and threatening attacks upon our consulates and embassies while shouting death to america. no, mr. president, my colleagues, the war against terrorism is not over. now we find out ten days later that al qaeda was involved in a planned attack in benghazi, dangerous poe tests continue in pakistan and throughout the muslim world. this morning, the commandant of our marine corps informed the capitol hill marines there are 153 marine units at the ready to protect u.s. consulates and embassies at the direction of the state department. they should be deployed. and he believed that the current danger may well last decades. the sobering truth hurts. was there actionable intelligence prior to this attack, and if there was not, why not? especially given recent intelligence
for the state department and for her country. we've seen that heavy assault on our post in benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we have nothing to do with. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless and it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the tape trader for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. and we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days ahead, but it is important that we don't lose sight of the fundamental facts that america must keep leading the world. we owe it to those four men to continue the long, hard work of diplomacy. i am enormously proud of the men and women of the state department. i am proud of all those across our government, c
and his courageous embassy staff have lost their lives in benghazi and in libya in a cruel, cold and gruesome intentional terror attack and all the while the response of this administration has communicated both weakness and lack of resolve to the world. [applause] and a top official seems in credulously apparently convinced that the only way to curtail this crisis is to put a full frontal attack on their free-speech free speech rights of american citizens. [applause] i want to be perfectly clear, this isn't just about a movie. this was an intentional act that was done by radical islamists who seek to impose their beliefs on the rest of the world, and we will not stand for it. [applause] [applause] no one here is suggesting that all muslims are radical, but we should not be ignorant of the objective reality that there is a very radical wing of islam that is dedicated to the destruction of america, of israel and of israel's allies. what we are watching develop before our eyes today are the direct consequences of this administration's policy of apology and appeasement across the gl
in been gaza, libya, their families families -- benghazi, libya. their families thoughts are in my prayers. these brave diplomats were patriots and professionals putting their lives on the line to advance american ideas and interests. their vital work is done daily by countless americans, diplomats abroad who serve in every corner of the world. in my own visit to libya last year, with a number of my colleagues, including senators mccain and senator graham, i saw the vital work and the accomplishment of such brave americans on the ground in great peril and severe danger. i also saw their sense of satisfaction and patriotism in the work that they are doing and i add my voice to my colleagues in asking for more support for security, enhanced safeguards and protection for our diplomats in these kinds of situations. they go about their work with understated perseverance and determination, as well as constant courage in the face of often chaotic and unpredictable dangers. the cowardly attacks on these patriots should not deter the people of libya from moving forward. neither should it deter us f
